The team of Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on the field against Delhi Capitals today. Will this player get a place in Virat’s playing XI?
Mohammad Azharuddin wreaked havoc with his bat in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
The team of Royal Challengers Bangalore, led by Virat Kohli, has done well in the current season of the Indian Premier League. In the 14th season of the IPL (IPL-14), RCB has played five matches so far, of which it has won four and won one. The amazing thing is that Bangalore won their first four matches. Bangalore’s team currently occupies the third position in the points table. However, in the meantime, there is also a question in front of Virat Kohli. The question is, when will the captain of RCB give a chance to a batsman who has hit a century on just 37 balls of his team in the playing eleven. Will this happen in today’s match against Delhi Capitals?
Actually, Royal Challengers Bangalore had added Mohammed Azharuddeen to this season’s auction. That too for only 20 lakh rupees. This is because Azharuddin silenced the best bowlers in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. The young Kerala batsman then smashed a 137-run knock against Mumbai in 54 balls with the help of nine fours and 11 sixes. He had completed a century in just 37 balls. This is the third fastest T20 century in Indian batsmen after Rishabh Pant (32 balls) and Rohit Sharma (35 balls).
Charismatic batsman from Kerala
Mohammad Azharuddin hails from Thalangra village in Kasargod district. He has been playing for Kerala since 2015. So far in T20 format, he has scored 451 runs in 25 matches at an average of 22.55 and a strike rate of 142.27. Mohammad Azharuddin is a wicket-keeper batsman. Azhar lands on the opening and he also scored the Ati century of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy against Mumbai on the same order. However, at present the responsibility of opening in the Bangalore team is handled by Virat Kohli and Devadatt Padikkal while the wicketkeeping gloves are being handled by AB de Villiers. In such a situation, if Virat Kohli decides to give rest to a player, then Azharuddin may get a chance to make his IPL debut. Let’s see when the wait for this young batsman of Kerala ends.
